I first visited Corrour in 2000 and this was to be my 3rd visit (all hill walking related). Last week I did a big walk and was looking forward to sampling the food as I had a 3 hour wait for the late train to Tulloch.
When I walked into the Station House, the clean and bright decor coupled with some welcome warmth made an instant impression. Ollie and Lizzie couldn't have been more friendly and as I had a pint of their specially brewed real ale along with estate stalkers and other walkers/visitoirs, I realised that a long wait for a train was a very good thing! Interestingly this is a dog friendly building and Lizzie's dog (Archie?) was in his basket behind the bar.
I looked at the menu which is very much geared to the local game produce but there are plenty of other options. I plumped for the Scallop with Haggis/Lemon Sauce and then had two huge Pheasant breasts for my main which were accompanied with finely cut melt in your mouth potatoes, a red wine/onion reduction, asparagus and sugar snap peas. Both courses were absolutely delicious. For me, the price to quality ratio was spot on and I ate like a king for £22.
I really must wish this young couple every success and fully intend to take my wife over there for a meal.
